Earning both a platinum and gold album before turning 20, Scotty McCreery is poised to become country’s newest superstar. His deep voice and an irresistible sound create the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional country. With over 150 live shows under his belt across the US, Canada and the Philippines, McCreery has become a fan favorite appealing to all ages. His first headlining tour has been so successful–with numerous sell-outs and additional shows added–that a fall leg has been added to the 2013 tour.
After winning Season Ten of American Idol, Scotty immediately established himself as one of the hottest new stars in country music. His debut album was the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. Indeed, he became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart.
That album, Clear As Day, was certified platinum for sales of one million in just thirteen weeks. The first two singles from that album were each certified gold. In 2012, his Christmas album was also certified gold. He was named Top New Artist by Billboard and won best new artist awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the CMT Awards. In the last two years, he has performed in Washington DC for the president as well as PBS’ A Capitol Fourth, sung the national anthem at the World Series and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Robertson family of A&E Duck Dynasty fame recently invited him to provide entertainment on their 2014 Duck Dynasty Cruise.
He co-wrote his current single, “See You Tonight,” which is climbing the charts. He is in the studio now with producer Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Trace Adkins) finishing his second studio album which will be released this fall. An avid sports fan and outdoorsman, McCreery is also beginning his sophomore year at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
